There is no doubt that winter is nearly upon us as snow now covers the ground in Central Illinois. As some of us are delinquent in getting our hogs units winterized, we get prepared for those important World Pork Expo and Summer Type Conference litters. Getting prepared is always a challenge at our house but you can guarantee your CPS Staff will be prepared for you.
Important Things to Remember:
1.Several Southwest Shows including the San Antonio Livestock show require that all purebred junior breeding gilts shown must be recorded on or before November 30th. No Exceptions.
a.If you have sold purebred gilts to potential San Antonio exhibitors, Please get them recorded today.
b.If you or your student has made a purchase of a purebred gilt, and there is even a slight chance this gilt may get shown at San Antonio, please contact the breeder and get the wheels in motion to get this gilt and her littler recorded.
2.DNA Cards– Please be reminded that all sires that incorporate the “CPS Brand” must have a DNA blotter card on file prior to recording a litter. Additionally, all Chester White sires must be stress negative.
3.Team Purebred Gilt Sale will be held Saturday, December 8th, 2018 in Lebanon, Indiana. An excellent opportunity to buy new genetics, fill these crates, and see some outstanding hogs of all breeds.
From the CPS Family to yours, Have a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving.
P.S. The office will be closed Thursday, November 22nd (Thanksgiving day) and Friday, November 23rd. Office hours will resume on Monday, November 26th.
